Happy Little Stampers: Stencils

It's time for the March STENCIL challenge at Happy Little Stampers! I picked a full card stencil for my inspiration this time: 

I started by blending yellow and orange distress inks on my cardstock panel - at first, I tried a third colour, but didn't like the result. I just flipped it over and started again! As you can see, I also splatted some water drops on for a little extra interest. Then I added the stencil and the same two inks. The orange was fine, but the yellow was almost invisible, so I blended off most of the orange ink on my brush onto scrap paper, then added just enough orange to the yellow so they showed. With the cheery colours, I thought the sentiment was apt - and as it turned out, I needed a get well card for a friend who recently broke her leg, and this makes a nice encouragement card. 
I'm adding this to the March STAMPlorations Stencil challenge
